FORM: Sending Crystal
SENDER: Josephine Montilyet
RECIPIENT: Everyone!
WHAT: A question! (Please talk to her, she's lonely.)
WHEN: Current
WHERE: Skyhold
NOTES: n/a

Good evening, everyone. My name is Josephine Montilyet and I am the Ambassador for the Inquisition. I've not had the pleasure of meeting as many of you as would like personally, so... I thought this might be an easier, more - ah - approachable way of getting to know each other better.

( She clears her throat as though to prevent herself from rambling. )

I must confess I do not know where to start. Perhaps a conversational ice-breaker will have to do. ( So much for not rambling. ) What do you miss most about your life before the Inquisition?

( She misses not being part of an organisation which welcomes wilful apostates and Dalish.

She does not say that.

Her voice is calm, as always. )

I miss life before the mages and Templars began their fool war, more than life before the Inquisition; too many lives have been lost to it.

( A pause; ) And what of you, Ambassador?

An answer befitting a diplomat, though I cannot fault it.

A great deal being at stake might be considered the natural state of Thedas, considering the past decade.

( Not combative, more just... an observation. )

( There is a quiet breath, and it might - maybe? - be a sound of amusement. At the very least, it is one of acknowledgement. )

What do you miss most about it?

You do not think that the Ambassador to the Inquisition is a well established place in the world?

( How curious. She is not certain if that is a genuine confession or not; diplomats are not knights, not bound to truth, and perhaps even benefitting from speaking around them. Still, if it is honest, there is something admirable in speaking so freely. )

It is hardest to know our own course, I think, with certainty. We must interrogate our hearts and our motivation at each turn. ( After a moment of pause, ) What is it you most love about politics, if I may ask, Ambassador?

To settle matters without bloodshed is a skill to be admired. It suggests an honour and kindness not often expected of politicians.
